Sailing Catamaran found by Hurricane Hunters Flying out the Eye Florence Continued on to the Bahamas

Hurricane Hunter aircraft flying through the eye of category 4 hurricane Florence, found the 41-foot sailing catamaran crossing the North Atlantic dodging three named cyclonic storms. The 2019 Bali 4.1 luxury catamaran named Vaughanderlust with a crew of a French captain and American mate were bound for the Dream Yacht Charter boat base in Marsh Harbor, Abacos, Bahamas after departing Portugal on August 18, 2018.

Slow Boat Sailing corresponded with Sean Connett who identified himself to Slow Boat Sailing as working for the Coast Guard’s Miami Rescue Coordination Center and PA1 Michael De Nyse responding on the U.S. Coast Guard Southeast.

We also spoke to the Dream Yacht Charter’s base to confirm the safe arrival of the catamaran crew at 9 AM on September 14, 2018, in Marsh Harbor, Abacos, Bahamas.

A press release from the U.S. Air Force said:

“Hurricane Hunters locate lost vessel, assist U.S. Coast Guard
The Air Force Reserve’s 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron assisted the U.S. Coast Guard with locating a 41-foot Bali sailing catamaran during a search and rescue mission Sept. 11, 2018.

Sailing La Vagabonde recently said in “Why we Chose to Sail during Hurricane Season! (Hurricane Gordon & Florence)” that they planned to sail through hurricane season because they could outrun weather in a catamaran.

Crazy Webcam 34-miles Offshore in the Eye of Hurricane Florence Goes Black

An old lighthouse renovated into an adventure travel hotel has a live webcam 34-miles off the North Carolina coast. The former Frying Pan lighthouse and now hotel seems like a windy spot to spend your vacation on September 13, 2018, as Hurricane Florence approaches the North Carolina coast.

The only way on or off the old lighthouse is by helicopter or by its 1,000 pound electronic hoist. The stairs to the sea were destroyed by another hurricane. (Actually, being hoisted atop the platform is probably good practice for when the USCG chopper will eventually hoist its occupants off in a basket when the tower starts collapsing in the storm.)

Leave a comment for your guess on the time and day when the lighthouse flag flies away or the the webcam goes out.

UPDATE: At September 18, 2018, at 11 PM the webcam went black. On the morning of September 12, 2018, the then the tattered flag was undamaged and the winds were light. That caused many comments on YouTube to allege that a loop of old footage replaced the broken webcam.

 

41-foot Sailing Catamaran Spotted by Hurricane Hunters “will be okay”

41-foot catamaran crew was spotted by the U.S. Air Force Hurricane Hunter aircraft on September 11, 2018.  The U.S. Coast Guard in response to requests from Slow Boat Sailing confirms the sailboat named Vaughanderlust is not in the path of Hurricane Florence, whose outer bands are making landfall in North Carolina on Thursday, September 13, 2018. The Hurricane Hunter was diverted to make contact after flying over the catagory 4 Hurricane Florence, which has since been downgraded to catagory 2. It sounds like the catamaran crew forgot their satellite phone, SSB, and forgot it was the height of hurricane season. It looks like a needle in a haystack from the picture.

Here is the original non-committal press release from the U.S. Air Force:

“Hurricane Hunters locate lost vessel, assist U.S. Coast Guard

The Air Force Reserve’s 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron assisted the U.S. Coast Guard with locating a 41-foot Bali sailing catamaran during a search and rescue mission Sept. 11, 2018. They assisted with the SAR mission after completing their mission for Hurricane Florence. (U.S. Air Force photo/Master Sgt. Jessica Kendziorek)”

Hurricane Hunters assist U.S. Coast Guard with search, rescue

They catamaran crew left August 18 from Portugal bound for the Bahamas according to the longer press release.

Sean Connett who identified himself to Slow Boat Sailing as working for the Coast Guard’s Miami Rescue Coordination Center which coordinated the contact by the Hurricane Hunter aircraft said, “I think they will be okay. They are south of the path [of Florence] and heading towards the Bahamas.” He also said, “The boat I’m thinking of is a new build being delivered to the Bahamas.”

PA1 Michael De Nyse responding on the U.S. Coast Guard Southeast’s Facebook page said the boat was 200 miles northwest of the Bahamas on September 11, 2018. That would put them south of the hurricane. The crew was not in distress, but they lacked communications according to Mr. De Nyse of the U.S. Coast Guard.

before Hurricane Florence, Sailing Mischief was SUNK by Irma & Stranded by Maria

The creators of Sailing Mischief lost their sailboat in a marina when it was hit by the eye of a major hurricane. Then they scrambled to escape an increasingly desperate situation on the island of St. Martin.

Linus Wilson interviews Ariana Czaia of the Sailing Mischief who with her boyfriend Christian Hightower lost their boat in the eye of hurricane Irma in September 2017. It was sunk by Irma in the marina. They then evacuated to Puerto Rico and found themselves in the eye of Hurricane Maria. Then Christian was stranded by hurricane Maria. Parts of this interview were aired on episode 51 of the Slow Boat Sailing Podcast and its patron-only bonus episode.

“MAYDAY” Capsized Catamaran Rescue Off Maui by the USCG

The Coast Guard station Maui rescued three people from a 40-foot sailboat. The capsized sailing catamaran was overturned and its hull was breached by waves between Lanai and Maui Hawaii.

Mysteriously, the waves were only supposed to be 3-4 feet near there. Moreover, waves or capsize should not normally cause a giant opening in the hull. The crew of the Deja Vu catamaran were returned to their home port of Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii. The three crew on the Deja Vu wisely stayed with the sailboat unlike the crew of the Good Humor sailboat in New Orleans. In the latter case, Micheal Lee Farley was found after the boat and crew member Sadie Thibodeaux died.

U.S. Coast Guard District 14 Hawaii Pacific

Also Thursday, at 2:35 p.m., a Station Maui RB-M crew responded to a distress call from a 40-foot catamaran crew. Their vessel capsized 3 miles east of Lanai. The RB-M crew arrived on scene and found all three of the boaters on top of the vessel’s overturned hull.

They recovered the boaters and return them to Lahaina. There were no reports of injuries.

The catamaran is currently adrift and a Hazard to Navigation Broadcast Notice to Mariners was issued. The maximum pollution potential from the vessel is reported as 12 gallons of gasoline.

“Both cases illustrate prepared crews who remained calm in adversity and most importantly had a means of communication with them to alert responders to their situation,” said Petty Officer 3rd Class Anna Blanton, a Coast Guard Sector Honolulu watchstander. “We recommend all mariners leave word with friends or family describing where they’re going and when they plan to return and take multiple means of communication with them.”

Hurricane Florence ON a Sailboat| Anchoring and Mooring for a Storm

Gary E. Brown has rode out several hurricanes on his sailboat on a mooring in St. Martin. He tells you how he did it, survived, and escaped major damage to his sailing boats. Gary E. Brown is the editor of All at Sea magazine and has been sailing the Caribbean for decades.

HurryThumb16by9

This is a controversial practice, but it is a great story. Captain Linus Wilson who speaks to Gary, argues that you should never stay on your boat in a hurricane. He says that any benefits of riding out the storm is outweighed by the human and economics costs of staying on the sailboat and risking injury or worse to the crew.

Sailing La Vagabonde recently spoke of their hurricane plan to stay in the hurricane belt for the height of hurricane season in “Why we Chose to Sail during Hurricane Season! (Hurricane Gordon & Florence)”

You will see many wrecked catamarans and sailboats from hurricanes Maria and Irma. We show the forecast of the major hurricane Florence from Windy.com using several different weather models. Florence is headed for South & North Carolina.

OMG! Dylan Magaster Bought a Sailboat!! Watch out Sailing La Vagabonde and SV Delos!!

Dylan Magaster’s kick off video, is amazing. He raised the bar on videography for the whole sailing vlog genre with this one video.

Dylan Magaster has about the same number of subscribers as the number one sailing channel Sailing La Vagabonde. Both channels top 400,000 subscribers. He bought a 1979 Morgan 38.2 sailboat for $10,000 in the Med.

CRASH! SAILBOAT HIT BY POWERBOAT in the Chesapeake Bay. Who caused the collision? UPDATED

A 35-foot J/105 sailboat, the LEVIATHAN, was struck on its beam by the 37-foot charter fishing boat, the HUNTER, in the Chesapeake Bay. The boats were owned by the Chesapeake Bay Boating Club of Eastport near Annapolis, Maryland and Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters, respectively.

Thumb16by9The Anne Arundel County Fire Department, Maryland Natural Resources Police, and the the U.S. Coast Guard helped separate the boats. The boats collided between Thomas Point Park and Kent Island.

UPDATE: The viral picture above was tweeted by the Maryland Natural Resources Police (MDNRP), whose twitter feed is @MDNRPolice.

That tweet above was believed to by Maryland government work product by many news outlets which is in the public domain and was featured in several print and TV outlets including the Washington Post, Fox 5, WBAL NBC11 , the Capital Gazzette, and Slow Boat Sailing as from the MDNRP.

Slow Boat Sailing was contacted by one of its newsletter subscribers on Sunday who said his wife took the photo on the left of the tweet on Friday, August 17, 2018. The Slow Boat Sailing newsletter subscriber said he and his wife stood by until rescuers arrived and were on seen before the MDNRP and the USCG. Slow Boat Sailing confirmed his wife did post the photo on a closed Facebook group minutes after the accident and hours before the @MDNRPolice tweet. On Monday, we contacted the MDNRP and they said the left photo in the tweet was from the Anne Arundel County Fire Department. The Anne Arundel County Fire Department’s Captain Russ Davies told Slow Boat Sailing over the phone that they had taken the picture from the social media post of a “Good Samaritan.”

The Good Samaritan gave us permission to use the photo and expressed his wish that neither he nor his wife be credited. We believe the Public Information Offices at MDNRP and the Anne Arundel County Fire Department have acted inappropriately in distributing that photo and have misled many news outlets and the public about its origin.

Interestingly, that subscriber did want to confirm to Slow Boat Sailing that the fishing boat the Hunter did not have its fishing lines out at the time of the collision. That is one more piece of evidence that may indicate that the powerboat should have gave way in the accident.
